Donor Benefits: Frequently Asked Questions
Why did you go with the titles RISK-TAKERS, REVOLUTIONARIES, and RADICALS?
Woolly Mammoth has always been happy to associate ourselves with the words risky, revolutionary, and radical. It’s at the core of our mission both on and off the stage. What better way to continue to recognize these traits than by cementing them as the new names of our donor circles?
If I’m not picking a show to sponsor, how will I make sure I’m invited to the events I want to attend like certain First Rehearsals and Cast Dinners?
When making your gift or pledge of $1,000+, just let us know which show or shows you’re most interested in and we’ll do our best to make sure you receive invitations for that production’s events. Otherwise, a member of our development staff will personally curate your invites and surprise you! Additionally, we’re excited to expand our Behind-the-Scenes Looks to include our Connectivity programming.
How will the COVID19 pandemic affect my benefits?
To attend any in-person donor events, patrons will need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test as outlined in our policy institutional policy here. As of September 1, we are planning to hold in-person donor events but will notify patrons within 72 hours of any scheduled event should that change.
How will the new benefits impact how I’m recognized in the playbill?
As a part of our commitment to live-out our values, we will continue to list all donors making contributions of $120+ in alphabetical order with an “*” or “+” to differentiate types of gifts and contribution amounts above $10,000.
What if I donated recently? Will I receive the new benefits?
While Woolly Mammoth’s fiscal year starts on July 1, donors are eligible to receive benefits for 12 months from the date of their gift or pledge.
